An episode of "Your Hit Parade", a music-themed TV series in which the cast performed the hit songs of the week and a couple of "extras". This episode is a bit of a "off-episode", not up to usual standards. Songs include: "Mockin Bird Hill", "Sparrow in the Treetops", "Be My Love", "How High the Moon", "On Top of Old Smoky" (a dreadful rendition), "Would I Love You" and "If". Some severe sound issues during the closing credits and Lucky Strike jingle.

A Very Good "Your Hit Parade"
A very good "Your Hit Parade" from 63 years ago. The music was good - both the vocals and instrumentals. The viewer should keep in mind that many of the songs were on the program for several weeks, making it necessary each week to change the singers and the scenes and ways each song was presented.
